Eco-conscious family business Andaluz commissioned Studio Saxe to create experiences around architectural designs that harness the power of the environment to create life-changing experiences. Concept. The Andaluz brand is all about meaningful and real experiences that combine comfortable human habitation with a deep connection to the surrounding landscape. A series of homes were carefully placed around existing trees on a hilltop which brings in ocean and jungle views whilst creating a sense of comfort and security for the inhabitants. Design. The Atrium House is poised elegantly on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean on one side and amazing mountain views on the other. A distinct vertical atrium joins all floors and creates passive cooling for comfort with minimal energy consumption. The main living space on the top floor floats above the tree line creating a high level of privacy and intimate connection to the views. A second social area on the ground floor enjoys a pool integrated with surrounding palms and a BBQ area which is ideal for gatherings.
